May 29, 1980 Marian's Andy Sherkness fires a no-hitter in the opening round of the District 11 Class AA playoffs as the Colts post a 5-0 victory over Saint Clair. Sherkness, a junior left-hander, strikes out 13 batters while walking eight. He dodges bases-loaded jams in both the first and second innings and also helps his own cause by delivering a two-run single. Jim Dennis, Pete Bubel and Dave Koin each add RBI singles while Bob Pasquariello finishes with three hits, one a double.
